Two Points Go Begging

Attendance: 4317

Referee:

Charlton let two points slip from their grasp last night in a game they dominated. In truth, for all their possession, they failed to trouble Clayton Ince in the home goal very much.

Parky made four changes from the team that started against Tranmere. Out went Basey, Sam, Semedo and Mooney to be replaced by Solly, Wagstaff, Racon and Akpo Sodje.

All of the replacements acquitted themselves well on a heavy pitch that was not conducive to flowing football. The conditions would have suited the more robust style of Semedo but a recent dip in form cost him his place.

Another minor surprise was Rob Elliot recovering from Saturday's knock to take his place ebetween the sticks. He got through without trouble but it was a quiet night for him.

Poor defending gifted Walsall the opener. A corner was only partially cleared and was returned to Troy Deeney who put his free header past Elliot.

The equaliser was down to a piece of quick thinking by Nicky Bailey. He played a short corner to the unmarked Akpo Sodje on the edge of the area and Jamie Vincent's clumsy challenge was deemed a foul. Burton was his usual immaculate self from the spot.

The second-half was largely played in Walsall's half of the pitch but Charlton rarely created chances despite their possession. New boy, Kyel Reid, again provided some teasing crosses as well as being somewhat wayward with his finishing.

Phil Parkinson will be disappointed not to have taken all three points.

Kyel Reid was always a threat.

This was disappointing, we dropped two points that we couldn't afford to drop here. Walsall hadn't won since November or something like that had they?

Perhaps we need some creativity...new signing Kyle Reid looks useful...Parky thinks Shelvey needs arest...i don't think so
